中文高级班

 

2018-2019学年开始了。今年开学开得比较早,因此全校师生觉得8月过得很慢。然而,几乎每位学生在open house之前都已收获满满,类似已学了一个学期的知识与技能了。

我今年负责8、10、11、12年级中文高级和IB 标准与高级水平班。即使准备工作比较多,但看到学生渴望学习汉语的态度,什么都值得了。除了10年级的3位学生以外,其他学生往年都曾是我的学生,因此互相都认识了,也就不用花很多时间去适应对方的教学与学习技巧,一下子就进入了正规的学习环境。

这个月值得分享的就是10年级学生的口头报告。他们各自介绍了一个他们想去的城市。虽然3位新同学都是首次在我班上课,但表现很不错,真让我欣慰!希望他们这个学年能突飞猛进,更上一层楼!

All three levels are designed to develop in students a working competency in reading, writing, and communicating orally in Chinese.

The Grades 4 and 5 Chinese program in Chinese International School Manila is designed to develop in students the following competencies in the Chinese language:

  1. Communicate effectively in a variety of situations and for multiple purposes using Chinese language
  2. Interact with cultural competence and understanding
  3. Connect with other disciplines and acquire information and diverse perspectives in order to use the language to function in academic and career-related situations
  4. Develop insight into the nature of language and culture in order to interact with cultural competence
  5. Communicate and interact with cultural competence in order to participate in multilingual communities at home and around the world

 

For Mandarin Chinese, student performance in each component will be assessed using rubrics that will be discussed with students prior to the assignment of tasks.  These rubrics will provide feedback to students in the four areas of communication focused on in the course: reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
